    I doubt that. Mixing C and C++ leads to C++ code being slightly bigger than
    intended. In C, you can have

    struct ops *p = void_ptr;

    In C++,

    struct ops *p = (struct ops *)void_ptr

    or even

    struct ops *p = static_cast<struct ops *>(void_ptr);

    And void*s are used a lot.
